Fifth Avenue Apple Galette

December 11, 2011

This is one of those days in Florida when you can sit outside for an afternoon snack relishing the temperatures, breeze and sweets.  Today we celebrated the beginning of our lovely winter weather.  When I decided to use the Fifth Avenue candy bars I thought of the first time I walked on Fifth Avenue in New York.  It was amazing and yet so disappointing at the same time.  For a shopping street or avenue I (in my mind) thought of the beautiful Worth Avenue in Palm Beach which was my shopping “trip” of choice.  Alas, Fifth Avenue has its own vibe, I do prefer the charm of Worth Avenue.  This might be a bit too sweet for a breakfast, but not for me.  It just includes candy bars!  But really that is no different from many sweet rolls, stollens and breakfast rings.  So enjoy, makes a great dessert as well with a dollop of ice cream.

Fifth Avenue Apple Galette


  • 1 Pastry Crust (recipe here for a double crust) (or use a purchased one)
  • 2-3 Granny Smith Apples (peeled and thinly sliced)
  • Ground Cinnamon (to sprinkle on the apples)
  • Sugar (to sprinkle on the apples and the crust)
  • 1 C. Fifth Avenue Candy Bars (chopped)
  • 1 egg (beaten)


  1. Make your pie dough in advance; or defrost purchased dough
  2. Sprinkle the apple slices with the cinnamon and sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice (let sit for about 15 minutes)
  3. Roll out the dough; place on a baking sheet with parchment paper
  4. Add the prepared apple mixture leaving 2″ border of dough; sprinkle the apple mixture with the chopped candy bars covering well
  5. Fold the border of dough over the apples; press gently while folding; brush the top edge of the dough with the egg and sprinkle crust with sugar
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes (apples will be tender and crust golden brown; remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 20 or more minutes
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature

(Serves 4-6-8)
